2016 Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour May 7 & May 8
Thank You for Making Our Tour a Success!
The San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit group that celebrates its 51th Anniversary this year, hosted their 2016 Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour. This was a self-guided, driving tour on Saturday and Sunday, Mother’s Day weekend, May 7 and 8, 2016 from 10am to 4pm each day.
Artists from the San Dieguito Art Guild were positioned in the gardens — showing and selling their paintings, ceramics, glass, gourd art, fiber arts, photography, jewelry, and much more. Free refreshments were served at every stop.
The 8 homes are within easy driving distance in the Encinitas area. Each home is as unique as the artists and owners. The 2016 tour chair, Laura Lowenstein says, “The art guild is gearing up for another wonderful tour of local homes with talented artists placed in each garden. We’re focusing on creating a warm and welcoming experience for families and friends to enjoy themselves surrounded by natural beauty and art.”
Two homes on the tour have stairs or uneven terrain that will be challenging for those physically handicapped or in a wheelchair.
This event is the major fund-raiser of the year for the San Dieguito Art Guild. Without funds from this tour the Guild would operate at a loss. Tickets were $25 per person and purchased at the Off Track Gallery or at www.OffTrackGallery.com (available after April 1) or at each home both days of the tour. This is a favorite tour of many San Diegans, many of whom take this tour year after year.
In keeping with their Mission Statement — The San Dieguito Art Guild is an organization dedicated to furthering artistic understanding and fostering artistic growth of members and the community at large by promoting interest, education, knowledge and skills in the visual arts — 10% of the net proceeds from the tour were donated to a chosen art related charity.
